NC county board reviews Aiken vote challenge

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - December 9, 2009

The Wake County Board of Elections scheduled a meeting Wednesday to examine a complaint questioning Aiken's voter registration in the county. It's unclear if he'll attend.

Wake Republican Party Chairman Claude Pope filed the complaint last month, after Aiken called candidates for the county school board "selfish idiots." Records show Aiken voted this fall in his hometown of Raleigh. He now has a house in nearby Chatham County.

Pope said he wants Aiken's registration canceled if he no longer lives in the county.

Board director Cherie (sherry) Poucher said the board will decide if there's enough evidence for a full-blown investigation.
